About the webinar
It is often difficult for time-pressed teachers to create activities that are suitable for all types of learners in the primary classroom, especially when it comes to storytelling – activities such as remembering or rewriting can be challenging for some learners, while others are not challenged enough.
By using Bloom’s taxonomy we can provide activities that involved a variety of thinking skills, providing learning opportunities for all the learners in a class.
During this webinar, Rachael Harris briefly presents Bloom’s taxonomy, by giving examples from various stories for each level of learning skills, from remembering to creating, and then showing how she uses a variety of these learning skills when using “Giraffes can’t dance” by Giles Andreae and Guy Parker-Rees. Participants share their ideas in the chat box.
